The University of Liverpool’s Technology Directorate has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) that will encourage research collaboration and service provision between the two institutions.
The agreement will enable researchers from LJMU to access technologies, equipment and expertise managed as Shared Research Facilities (SRFs) by the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences Technology Directorate, such as the Centre for Cell Imaging, the Centre for Proteome Research and the Magnetic Resonance Imaging Centre.
The signing was attended by Professor Bob Burgoyne, Executive Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at the University of Liverpool and Professor Robin Leatherbarrow, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Scholarship, Research & Knowledge Transfer) at LJMU.
Professor Bob Burgoyne commented: “The Memorandum of Understanding is a practical solution the two Universities have adopted to share resources in the spirit of the Wakeham report. We hope it will forge a stronger bond between the two institutions and drive research collaboration and innovation.”
Professor Robin Leatherbarrow commented: “This is an excellent opportunity for the two universities to work together to encourage emerging areas of research excellence and to create a vibrant and collaborative scholarship environment for STEM subjects.”
